Marcelo Krasilcic is a Brazilian American artist born in São Paulo into an eastern European Jewish family. He moved to New York in 1990 to study art and photography at the New York University and yoga at the Jivamukti Center and Patanjali Yoga Shala. Soon after graduating at NYU, he started exhibiting his art work and contributing to the early efforts of magazines such as Purple, Dazed & Confused, Self-Service and Visionaire. Marcelo continues to live in New York, and he travels extensively working in-between the fields of art, portraiture and fashion. Marcelo also directs art, music and fashion videos and creates sculpture. Marcelo’s first book entitled, 1990s,  an overview about his groundbreaking work in that decade, was released in 2013.
